I took part in this four years ago when it first started. Trained from being able to do the odd gentle jog to regular 8 miler training runs and then the event itself. Takes alot of effort and dedication to do it properly. But I'm nearly 15 stones. Hard to believe seeing me yes I know! If you need a summer fitness challenge, a goal to aim for this could be just the right timing. Give it a try it'll give you a new lease of life (if it doesn't kill you first that is!) Here's the circular I've just received promoting this year's Half marathon
IT’S BACK AGAIN AND
Tonbridge Lions Club and
Tonbridge Rotary Club are staging the 5th Tonbridge Half Marathon at the fantastic
West Kent College. In addition to some of the best facilities of any half
marathon in the country, a finishers medal and a goody bag, runners will also
receive a technical t-shirt – all this and the price is UNCHANGED from last year – only £20 or £18 if you
are an affiliated runner!! AMAZING!
The undulating course is on traffic-free lanes through beautiful countryside
around Tonbridge and Leigh. Last year the event raised over £16,000 for the
charities we supported and the runners themselves raised an estimated £50,000
in sponsorship for more than 45 of their own charities.
